Dance Like No One's Watching . . . (even though everyone is)

We’ve heard it before, but what does it mean to “dance like no one’s watching”? William Purkey, an author and public school teacher-turned Professor Emeritus of Counselor Education at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, is responsible for the quote, “You’ve got to dance like there’s nobody watching, love like you’ll never be hurt, sing like there’s nobody listening and live like it’s heaven on earth.” You might think it requires dancing in the dark where no one can see you or indulging in an alcoholic beverage (if of age) to lower your inhibitions and awareness of others watching you, but be assured, there is more to it.


It means dancing free from judgment, criticism or fear of what others might think. It means dancing in your bedroom at seven years old to Paula Abdul’s Shut Up and Dance album. It means being present and not overwhelmed or consumed by others’ expectations. It means focusing on why you started dancing in the first place — for fun, for expression, for connection!

We Care About Your Health!

Coronavirus. . .

With all the recent news about the coronavirus, COVID-19, we want to assure you our main focus remains on the health and welfare of our students, families and staff.


Here at MKS we continue to follow daily cleaning and sanitizing of the studios, lobby and bathrooms.


According to the CDC, the symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to influenza and may be spread when a sick person coughs or sneezes. The vast majority of reported cases only experience mild symptoms and are well enough to stay home. As with influenza, elderly people and those with underlying health conditions are more likely to develop severe disease and require hospitalization.


We ask that anyone who experiences these symptoms to please stay home so as not to infect other students, families and staff. Thank you!
